Doesn't change much about the conclusion, though. Yep, insanely expensive, even though it comes with a free TC...
The Oly 300mm f/4 is "just" 2500USD.
The Leica 100-400mm is pretty much the bargain alternative at 1800USD ( ... or 1300USD locally ... )
Seriously 3k$? That's 1k too much no matter how you look at this.
It's even more weird when considering the fairly reasonable costs for the new Leica zoom lenses (8-18mm, 12-60mm). The upcoming 50-200mm f/2.8-4 is probably also in the same ballpark as those.
